Rawlins Reviews Elite 11; Talks Penn State

The Nike Elite 11 camp stopped in Columbus, Ohio on Friday, and it was a learning experience for Monessen dual-threat quarterback Chavas Rawlins, who has suddenly come on to Penn State's 2013 radar.

"It [the Elite 11 camp] was an awesome experience. I learned a bunch of new things," Chavas Rawlins said.

"I learned a whole bunch of different things like football, release points, and stuff like that." Rawlins- who measures in at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds- also noted that he shred the list of eight schools he had previously been focusing on.

"I did have a top list of schools, but I don't any more. It's back wide open," Rawlins said.

Rawlins told Scout few weeks back that he had narrowed his list to eight schools- West Virginia, Virginia, Purdue, Michigan, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, and Duke - but now, he has decided to re-open outside the top eight. That means Penn State may come into play, as running backs coach Charles London has been recruiting Rawlins, though not as a quarterback, but as a wide receiver.

"Coach London keeps in touch with my coaches, and he stopped by the school to watch me run routes a couple days ago," Rawlins said.

"He [Coach London] told me I should come to a camp to work out for the coaches," Rawlins said.

While Rawlins is not sure if he'll camp at Penn State , he does expect to make more trips this summer.
